Barbara Bush

“Why should we hear about body bags and deaths? It’s not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?”

I'm hearing some sort of clarion call that we should all start grieving for this woman. Well she's in her 90s for one, and she didn't give a rat's ass about the people killed and maimed in her son's boondoggle that hasn't ended to this very day.

So, no. Just save it.

I think that yours is the fifth, or, perhaps, 10th, post about her.

For some of us, this is dying with dignity, as most of us want. For the rest of us - we do not want to waste a single moment thinking about her. So follow the second option and move along to other topics.

She was talking about the media hype running up to the war. There is no “clarion call” for anyone to grieve that I have seen...can you provide a link to said “clarion call?”
